I arrived in Annapolis with a great excitement; it 
was the excitement of the unknown, or perhaps 
better, the excitement of my youth. I was quite 
young that lazy June morning, and I wanted 
them to know I was ready.

But what was I ready for? No one had ever told me. and 
I am unable even now to tell you. Whatever it was I ex- 
pected, I was totally unprepared for what I got. 







I left my folks and 
my bags and got 
in line, and got in

But as much as I hated standing in line, as 
sure as I was that there was a "better way," I 
didn't know where I was going, and I needed 
those hnes.

I can remember a moment, in the beginning, when 
I was sure, when I knew. I had a direction, a pur- 
pose. I was in control! Somewhere in the confusion 
of registration, however, it got taken away. I was 
being led. and I had to learn something new. I had 
to learn to follow.

Induction was certainly a learning experience. I discov- 
ered I took a "small" in everything save my skivvies, 
and they were a "large." My shirts were three sizes 
bigger than I had thought, but that was because I had 

been wearing the wrong size 
shoes for so long. They gave me 
an eight triple A. I tried to tell 
the man I was a ten C . . . .

After a morning of cus- 
tom fittings, I was ready 
for lunch. Ravioli and 
salad, broccoli, bread and 
butter. Wasn't much to 
look at certainly, but 
there was no getting 
around the fact that it 
tasted good. I was told I'd 
get this meal coming and 
going, but at that point I 
didn't care how I got it— I 
was starving. 









I spent most of the after- 
noon in my room, mark- 
ing clothes and discov- 
ering. The room itself 
wasn't too bad— a few 
pictures and it might 
even be livable! The view 
was really pretty, looking 
out, and it came to grow 
prettier and prettier as 
the days passed by. But 
there wasn't time to 
really look that first day. 
There were so many 
things that had to be 
done ....

But finally it had 
come. After long 
hours of waiting in 
line, hours of folding 
shirts and socks, I 
marched into the in- 
duction ceremony. 
And although it was 
the late afternoon, 
this was by no 
means the end; no, 
this ceremony 

marked the official 
beginning of a new 
life for me.

Sitting before the Admiral, the first 
time we'd personally met, I was truly 
unaware of the importance of my 
being. Before my family and friends, 
officers and upperclassmen, I sat 
haplessly, half watching, and half 
asleep, until . . .

"I, having been appointed a midshipman in the 
United States Navy, do solemnly swear that I will 
support and defend the Constitution of the United 
States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that 
I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I 
take this obligation freely, without any mental reser-

faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I 
am about to enter: So help me God."

And then it was over. In a 
couple of moments. Tecum- 
seh Court was clear of all but 
a few proud parents and 
brothers. There was only time 
left for a warm congratulation 
and a salty good-bye. The for- 
mal induction over, my in- 
doctrination would soon be-

Plebe summer was definitely a trying 
time. In my transition from civilian 
to military life, I felt many moments 
of bewilderment, fatigue, and exas- 
perating frustration. It was hard 
work, but not all work . . .

And although there was a great deal of

there were certain aspects in which I 
could see no purpose, such as marching

For all my fears and anxieties,

kinds of screws ....

My apprehensions about aca- 
demic year rang true, and I 
soon found that my hmited 
organizational qualities in- 
bued over the summer needed 
much refining, for there was 
never enough time.

I was told the plebe class carries 
the spirit of the Brigade, and, al- 
though Navy's spirit seemed to 
be luffing apathetically all fall, I 
was able to fill the sails at Philly 
enough to carry on until 
Christmas.

He stood beside the river. 
Looking for tomorrow. 

Beneath the surface, the 

Fish 

Swam silently. 

He watched the swans 

Ghde by, dressed in 

Majestic 

Whites and greys. 

The bull frogs offered their vocation. 

Entertaining in their amphibious play. 

And in the water's 

Reflection, 

There appeared flocks and flocks of 

Birds.

He was a runner. 

With only a single year left to compete. 

He knew the summer would be important. 

It was a time to train, and a 

Time to teach. 

A time to teach himself. 

And through his teaching, he knew he must 

Learn.

TIJUANA NAVY (Words by Brig Gen R. F. McDermott) 

With air power as his theme 

It was Billy Mitchell's dream 

To shake up the old regime 

And sink battleships with just a few small bombs. 

His success is history 

And all men who go to sea 

Live in fear that they may see 

Airplanes bomb and strafe and sink the fleet. 

Now the day in nigh ^HBtH^' 

Sea and airpower meet 
Falcons from on high 
Scuttle Navy's fleet. 

Bomb and strafe them 

From port and starboard 

Penetrate them 

Like they were cardboard 

Billy Mitchell 

Has shown the way to win. 

When the Navy comes ashore 

They fear airpower even more 

They will strike the blue and gold 

To the Falcon team that's swift and bold. 




When the Falcon from Blue Zoo 
Meets the Goat from Canoe U. 
We'll live up to Mitchell's dream 
We will bonib and sink the Navy team. 

We will do a victory roll 

Over Navy's blue and gold 

And they'll sing the C rabtown blues 

From Annapolis to Newport News. 

Now the day is nigh 
Sea and air power meet 
Falcons from on high 
Scuttle Navy's fleet. 

Bomb and strafe them 

From port and starboard 

Penetrate them 

Like they were cardboard 

Billy Mitchell 

Has shown the way to win. 



m 



So let's gaff them fore and aft 

Let's harpoon their flimsy craft 

And before their day is through 

Let us dominate--and penetrate--and finally- -eliminate- -the fleet.

That wonderful Sunday in October seemed 
like a prison pardon. No more hiding, no more 
sneaking, no more worries about GETTING 
CAUGHT. With my mobility increased ten- 
fold, I began to Uve a 5-day week at Navy.

5 JUNE, 1974. 



The raise of a cheer, 

The toss of a cap. 

Never to fear another frap. 

What should I remember? 

What should I forget? 

What of all the friends I knew 

And those I never met? 

Bancroft Hall. 

For all of her 

Mothering and 

Mickey Mouse, 

She was still four years of my life. 

Success, failure. 

Happiness, sorrow. 

Hello, good-bye. 

Today, tomorrow. 

I am the Class of 1974, 

Unique in my character, my face. 

My name. 

But 1 am also a product of the 

Annapolis Brass Factory, 

And so 1 carry my stereotypes, too. 

I hope that my future will not be 

Munipulized as a 

Puppet on a string; 

Rather, 

I hope that I am recognized for 

That which I am: 

The individuals who form me 

And every class. 

Without them, 1 am nothing.

They are a feeble form of expression, these words of mine. "Indecisive" and "uncertain" are poor 
polysyllables to describe my present mental state. I am left lost and wondering, alone in the dark- 
ness of expiation. Each one of us will interpret events in a different way. There is no universal 
truth. My heart can speak of all emotions, but where are there ears gentle enough to listen? Were I 
to speak to ten different men, or perhaps three brothers, or to a husband and wife, I am certain 
there would be no interpretations alike. We are solitary beings, we men. Regardless of our uni- 
form appearance or commonahty of growth, we remain throughout as snowflakes, no two being 
the same. 




The Class is a Prism, 

Separating the 

Light which strikes it into the 

Toms and Joes and 

Mikes 

Which color our lives. 

Without their pigments, we would all be 

Trapped 

In the Blacks and Whites of automation. 

As we leave the Brigade to join a 
Greater fraternity. 
Let us take our pallets with us. 
That we might each become 
Artists of men. 




I would like to thank C. W. Chesterman, Bill Whitacre, Glenn 
Thrasher, and Bill Moore for their invaluable aid in producing 
this book. To the Class of 1974 and most especially to the men of 
8th company, I would Uke to extend a warm thank you for your 
most respected and treasured friendships.

It's authored by Vice Admiral James Cal- 
vert, U.S.N., who explains that when he 
was a midshipman he was anxious to find 
a book that would brief him about the 
Navy as a profession. About what naval 
officers do aboard ships. The feeling of 
commanding a vessel How officers are 
educated, how their families live, what 
their traditions are. Since he never found 
such a book, in 1965 he wrote it himself. 
The Naval Profession has been a principal 
guide for Navy men and their families ever 
since. 

Now with the aviation and submarine 
branches becoming more dominant in 
today's Navy, with the Soviet Union 




emerging as a world-wide sea power, naval 
thinking in the U.S. has changed. The 
modern Navy supports research on sub- 
jects ranging from the language of por- 
poises to the radiation-absorption cross 
section of nuclear materials. It has officers 
who are specialists in everything from re- 
ligion to criminal law, from economics to 
orthopedics, and from civil engi- 
neering to journalism. 

Admiral Calvert, consequently, has 
revised his book, bringing it up-to- 
date with all the radical changes 
in the past half decade. Once more, this is 
your best introduction to life in the United 
States Navy.

The finest stereo receiver 
tlie world lias ever known. 



We recognize the awesome respon- 
sibility of making such a statement. 
Nevertheless, as the leader in 
high fidelity, we have fulfilled this 
responsibility in every way. 

Pioneer's new SX-1010 AM-FM 
stereo receiver eclipses any unit that 
has come before it. It has an 
unprecedented power output of 
100+100 watts RMS (8 ohms, both 
channels driven) at incredibly low 
0.1% distortion, throughout the entire 
audible spectrum from 20 Hz to 
20,000 Hz. Power is maintained 
smoothly and continuously with 
direct-coupled circuitry driven by 
dual power supplies. 

To bring in stations effortlessly, 
clearly and with maximum channel 
separation, the SX-1010 incorporates 
an FM tuner section with over- 
whelming capabilities. The combina- 
tion of MOS FETs, ceramic filters 



and phase lock loop IC circuitry 
produces remarkable specifications 
like 90dB selectivity, 1.7uV sensitivity 
and 1 dB capture ratio. 

Versatility is the hallmark of 
every Pioneer component. The 
SX-1010 accommodates 2 turntables, 
2 tape decks, 2 headsets, 3 pairs of 
speakers, a stereo mic and an 
auxiliary. It also has Dolby and 
4-channel connectors. There's even 
tape-to-tape duplication while listen- 
ing simultaneously to another 
program source. This is another 
innovative Pioneer exclusive. 

The SX-1010 is actually a master 
control system with its fantastic array 
of controls and features. It includes 
pushbuttons that simplify function 
selection and make them easy to see 
with illuminated readouts on the 
super wide tuning dial. FM and audio 

Cd PIONEER' 

when you want something t>etter 



muting, hi/low filters, dual tuning 
meters, loudness contour, a dial 
dimmer control and a fail-safe 
speaker protector circuit. Never 
before used on a receiver are the twin 
stepped bass and treble tone controls 
that custom-tailor listening to more 
than 3,000 variations. A tone defeat 
switch provides flat response instantly 
throughout the audio spectrum. 

By now it's evident why the 
SX-1010 is the finest stereo receiver 
the world has ever known. Visit your 
Pioneer dealer and audition its 
uniqueness. $699.95, including a 
walnut cabinet.

OCEAN CABLE TECHNOLOGY 
TO MEET ASW REQUIREMENTS 
NOW-AND IN YOUR FUTURE 

Extensive and hard-won experience in over- 
coming problems presented by the undersea 
environment has given SIMPLEX a reputa- 
tion for proven quality which is recognized 
throughout the world— and has brought it to 
a position of preeminence in ocean cable 
manufacture. 

SIMPLEX achievements range from the 
pioneer underwater crossing of Mackinac 
Straits in 1899, through its contribution to 
the laying of the first transoceanic telephone 
cables in the late 1950's, to its involvement

When all you make 

are helicopters, one of the 

things you emphasize 

is Research 

and Development* 




Better products come from those prepared 
to meet customers' future needs. 

At Bell, Research and Development has 
built the technology base to answer this requirement. 

Adapting to changing needs has led to 

many advancements in Bell helicopters. 

Like elastomeric bearing hubs, that need no 

lubrication— ever. Gear boxes that won't 

seize, even after loss of oil. A nodalized 

suspension system that eliminates fuselage 

vibration. Application of advanced 

materials. Highly effective integrated 

weapon systems. Plus techniques in manufacturing 

and cost-control that have become standards 

for the helicopter industry.

Business is bound 
to cliange. 



Change upsets people. Always has. 
Disrupts routine and habit patterns. 
Demands constant adaptation. 

But change is inevitable. And essen- 
tial. Inability to change can be fatal. 

Unfortunately, most of man's institu- 
tions are highly resistant to change. 

This, as much as anything else, under- 
lies the explosive reaction of many peo- 
ple in our country in the past few years. 
They took a fresh and uncluttered look 
at the world around them, and found 
many institutions archaic. Higher edu- 
cation. Government. Religion. Business. 

These institutions have begun to re- 
spond to the need for change, even if 
not always with breathtaking speed. 

Among these institutions, business is 
by the nature of things compelled to 
change more rapidly— and perhaps 
more realistically— if it is to survive. Com- 
panies that cannot foresee change and 
adapt to it quickly enough die. There is 
seldom anybody to subsidize business 
inefficiency for any length of time. 

One reason business— especially big 
business — can respond to change 
quickly is that basically it is in the busi- 
ness of change. Business depends heav- 
ily on forward planning, and planning is 
the orderly management of change. 

Another reason is that business itself 
produces more change, probably, than 
any other institution. Through its re- 
search and development programs. 



Through new technology it develops 
and applies. Through new plants it 
builds. Through its need to be a good 
employer. Because its own long-term 
self-interest dictates a better life for peo- 
ple everywhere. Because it must face 
facts and think rationally about what 
may appear to be unthinkable. 

Business can be plenty wrong, and 
wrong-headed, despite ail those things 
we just listed. But its record for bringing 
change-with-meaning to society is im- 
pressive. Which has an obvious moral 
ifor anyone today who wants to change 
the world, rationally and constructively. 

Change doesn't always produce a 
Renaissance, of course. But it can— if 
business, and the rest of society, think 
hard and clearly enough about where 
we want change to take us. And how 
fast. And what the options are. And 
whether benefits at least equal costs. 

One sphere where clear, contempor- 
ary thinking would produce some 
urgently needed change is in the stereo- 
types and obsolete concepts that some 
people who should know better still har- 
bor about all big business. Some of those 
concepts may once have been valid 
across the board, and some, unfortu- 
nately, may still be valid with respect to 
some corporations. But not to all. 

Times have changed. So have many 
of us big businesses. Because change 
is what we're inseparably bound to.
